You don't have to worry about spending all your Christmas shopping cash though and to avoid paying the full whack, the new scheme means you can reserve a ticket with a £50 downpayment on the condition that you pay the full balance by March 31 2013.

There are all sorts of rumours about who will be headlining and with three new stages including an extra dance tent confirmed for next year's festivals, it's all sounding pretty exciting.
